Confirmed: Universities Are Dropping Testing Standards In Order to Improve ‘Diversity’

This only stands to hurt future generations…

Good grades? Who cares? Bad grades? Doesn’t matter. What counts is that you’re non-white. Nothing else will stand in the way! Literally, nothing.

This is what things have come to in 21st century America, thanks to Barack Obama, AOC, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Mitt Romney, and other far-left, anti-American nutjobs.

It doesn’t matter how well you did in high school when applying to college, anymore. What matters is your ethnicity. Seems just slightly racist, doesn’t it?

Colleges and universities are changing both admissions and curriculum requirements in order to create more ‘diversity’ within their student bodies. These changes often involve lowering of standards, and an implication that students from certain backgrounds cannot score as high on tests as their peers.

This year, the College Board ruled that it would not go forward with adding the proposed controversial “adversity score,” which would add points to a student’s SAT/ACT score based on his or her socioeconomic background. After criticism from many students and parents concerned not only about the implication that certain groups need to handicap their test scores but also about the creation of unfair disadvantages for students who don’t fit the ‘diversity’ bill, the CEO of College Board decided to instead use a system by a different name: “Landscape.” This program doesn’t assign an “adversity score,” but has the same goal of considering socioeconomic factors into SAT and ACT scores. The factors considered are housing stability, median family income, household structure, college attendance, education levels, and crime.

If Republicans do it, it’s bad. If far-left radicals do it, it’s good.

And “it” can literally be the same exact thing. That’s the problem with Democrats today.

The hypocrisy is astounding.

For example, embattled rookie lawmaker AOC was ticked off after Republicans stormed Nancy Pelosi’s office. See the tweet…

There have been many aspects of the GOP’s little flash mob that have relied on mountains of entitlement and privilege, but them *asking* the police to be arrested is just…

Well, let’s just say my community would find it hard to understand why *anyone* would ask to be arrested.

But at Satruday’s Yale-Harvard football game, where “climate change” goofs disrupted before kickoff and demanded to be arrested, AOC didn’t see a problem.

LOOK:

Harvard-Yale update: The protestors have told police they want to be arrested. So police have tied them together, two at a time, and are taking them off the field.

Kickoff in about 10-mins.

O’Commie-Cortez made yet another extremely ridiculous statement this past weekend in order to get attention.

Apparently, she seems to crave it and can never get enough. Here are the thoughts of a person who speaks for thousands of equally far-left New Yorkers…via Daily Wire:

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocaiso-Cortez (D-NY) claimed on Saturday that Republicans were making the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry a “partisan issue” and that it was “inappropriate” to ask Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, to testify before Congress despite the fact that this entire ordeal surrounds a business deal in which he was allegedly involved.

AOC was asked by ABC News, “Congresswoman, I do want to ask you, we had some news that broke earlier today. Your Republican colleagues announced that they intend to call on Hunter Biden as a witness in this impeachment probe. Is he an appropriate witness?

She screeched, “No, I don’t think he’s an appropriate witness, and not only that, but I think that the reason they’re calling for these witnesses, these new witnesses, is because they want to make a spectacle and a circus out of this entire proceeding.

WATCH:

[email protected] says Republicans want to call Hunter Biden as a witness to turn impeachment into a “sideshow.”

FACT CHECK: By a 5-point margin, more voters would like Joe and Hunter Biden investigated than support holding hearings to consider impeachment of @realDonaldTrump.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
